  1. I, also, would love to know what de shaw is up to. I know it's a serious firm, though my impression is more quant. Very smart people involved, which (i imagine) should lead to something, but unsure if they publish or present at conferences.

    1. I know one person who worked at DE Shaw prior to grad school. He was doing a lot of hardcore MD simulations of GPCRs. He got a lot of pubs out of working there, so they definitely do publish.

  2. By their own words: "We have developed a special-purpose supercomputer capable of simulating biomolecular phenomena that are relevant to the understanding and potential treatment of cancer, diabetes, and a wide variety of other diseases." I think someone in Silicone Valley had just excited them about a tremendous investment opportunity, but they realized they have a lot more money than expertise in this field. I expect some sort of biotech incubator. I think the chemists who go to work there will be in for interesting times.
